Our coaches and visiting coaches coach for free:
there is no charge.
Members volunteer their coaching and professional coaches assigned by British Canoeing also work at the club from time to time.
Members occasionally go to coaches or organisations who charge for coaching.
If you wish to invite a commercial coach to the Club site, please read the Guest Coach Policy and abide by it. Make sure your guest commercial coach understands it too.
This agreement seeks to ensure that other Club members' use of the facilities is not compromised and furthermore, that our assets are secure and protected from exploitation for commercial gain, that members are protected from conflict of interests and that the commercial coach's boundaries and responsibilities are clear.
We are planning a
Festival of Paddling
over the weekend of 7th and 8th August. Including proper festival camping! Save the date.
PAA's (club activity leaders) are having their qualification refreshed and the standards are rising. Tony has done a grand job of re-structuring the assessment process and we look forward to more members attaining leadership status in the club.
Members can borrow boats and paddles. Talk to Paul Ford or James Taylor if you want to take some gear away on loan.
Slalom Returns to Bingers
We will be holding a Div 3 and 4 slalom over the weekend of 4th and 5th September. There will be races and loads of opportunities to help out in the week before and on the days. Pop it in your diaries!
